In the bag


It's done - the first item on my list for the Yarn knit-along. See this post for yarn and pattern details. It's 4 repeats longer than the pattern and I put the eyelets in the second pattern repeat which gives a ruffled top.



Because this was a tape yarn I used it to make the ties as well.


I'm particularly pleased with the beads. The photo's not so hot, but I had wooden beads in exactly the right shades of orange and pink. No purchases were made to conceive or complete this project. Whacko!



And I've cast on my next KAL project, Ditte Larsen's Christiane Collar from issue 7, Winter 2007.

Gorgeous! I love the colours in that yarn. I think I have something very similar (maybe the same Lang stuff, certainly similar colours) in the stash. It knitted up pretty scratchy so I thought it could maybe make a bag rather than a scarf as first imagined.

dh: Hrumph!

Great bag Taph. I'm looking for a pattern for soap bags for Kris Kringles with my Lions Club, and perhaps even a bath mit, preferably knit in Sugar 'n' Creme or Peaches and Cream.

Snap! I just finished this for the YarnKAL too, but I love the colour of yours, just beautiful :)
